Jadcherla: The Road Transport authorities (RTA) have cracked a whip on the auto-rickshaws and various private transport vehicles ferrying passengers more than permitted and seized nine autos besides one Toofan vehicle on Thursday in Jadcherla mandal of Mahbubnagar. It can be recalled that recently an overloaded auto-rickshaw at Midjil was knocked down by a speeding lorry leaving 12 persons dead and three severely injured.
